Sweet baby Chan was so precious for his lifestyle newborn session in his Greenville home! He was as peaceful and serene as his beautiful nursery.

Ohhhh, sweet Addilyn! This girl walked right in and was just confident and happy in my chair for her sitting! She’s as happy and joyful as she looks in these portraits.

This sweet family has been with me since big sister Mason was born, and now we got to photograph them as a beautiful new family of four with the arrival of Ellis! I loved having them in my Greenville studio for a pure and simple newborn session – no props, no “extras” just a lot […]

Kathryn Belle and Kemp are a sweet set of sisters who were so much fun to photograph for their heirloom portrait sittings. Fun fact – little Kemp is actually sitting on her moms lap for her portrait!

Sweet Luke was so much fun to have in the studio! We played lots of games during his portrait sitting. When working with children, I always try to keep them engaged and excited so that we get genuine expressions. We played a lot of catch during our time together in the studio! His portraits are […]
